AFC Hayes 0 Hitchin Town 5

Saturday, October 9 2010

Hitchin made it 10 goals in two games with a patient performance against struggling AFC Hayes in a game which underlined the staying power of Carl Williams' title-chasing side.

Double nap Canaries

Two 5-0 wins on the bounce for the Canaries - you have to go back to the days of 2-3-5 for that kind of frequency. After trouncing Leighton on Tuesday night, the Canaries sowed their superiority against an AFC Hayes side that looks as though it is punching way above its weight.

Pepper at HayesCarl Williams said that his team was fitter than most this week, and on the evidence of this display, he may be right. Hitchin had extra legs, more stamina and were quicker in the challenge than the home side.

To give AFC Hayes credit, though, they made it difficult for Hitchin for the opening 40-odd minutes. And it was not a goal from open play that started the scoring - but a penalty from Jamie Arlick on 43 minutes after Callum Donnelly had been sent sprawling in the area.

AFC Hayes' manager, looking more like an out-of-sorts salesman than a football coach, went in at half-time exchanging insults with the crowd, claiming Hitchin's players were a shade too theatrical for his liking. But in the second half, he could have few complaints as the Canaries tore his team apart.

But it was a soft goal that extended Hitchin's lead on 63 minutes, an Arlick glancing header from Richard Howell's free kick.

The third goal was also messy on 70 minutes. A high ball into the penalty area caused untold problems for the AFC Hayes defence, and the ball was pushed goalwards and finished off by Louis Lee.

Three minutes later, Hitchin scored again, Howell nodding the ball across goal and Callum Donnelly applied the finishing touch. In the 80th minute, Hitchin completed the scoring when substitute John Frendo superbly lobbed the ball home with supreme calmness. Frendo looked very impressive in the half hour he was on the pitch, which bodes well for the future.

Arlick almost secured his hat-trick when he headed against the woodwork and in the closing stages, Hitchin might have added more goals, but no-one will mind that it ended 5-0 - except the home team.
